Rad Racer was one of the early NES racing games in which the player
drives either a sports car or an F1 racer down roads and must make it
past certain checkpoints in a given amount of time in order to finish
the race and move on.
The only thing which made this old NES game unique was that, if you
pressed Select during game play, the colors would change so the player
could wear 3D glasses and play the game in a 3D motif instead of the
regular 2D graphics. Hey - it was made in the 80s, after all.
